Investing in modern reliable wastewater services is essential to safeguarding the environment, building healthy sustainable communities and supporting future growth. Today, Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, on behalf of François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, Government Relations Minister Warren Kaeding, and Preeceville Mayor Garth Harris, announced more than $5.1 million in joint funding to improve Preeceville’s wastewater treatment facility.
“The Government of Saskatchewan’s investment of more than $1.7 million toward this important Town of Preeceville project will help position the community for growth, better safeguard the environment, and help keep our great province strong,” Kaeding said. “It’s impressive to see this project beginning to move from the drawing board to reality.” The project involves upgrading the community’s existing wastewater storage cells and increasing their capacity, along with improving the system’s overall treatment process. The force main pipe that delivers wastewater to the treatment facility will also be upgraded. Once complete, the project will improve the quality of wastewater entering the Assiniboine River, and support local development.
